In Beautiful Brugge

By Alternativeeden @markngaz

This is going to be a bit of a retro post, rewinding back to the 5th of May when we spent a long weekend in the beautiful medieval city of Brugge.

It is one of those cities that is achingly beautiful and truly lives up to its hype of being breathtaking to behold.

The well preserved medieval city center is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is traversed by canals giving it the nick name 'Venice of the North'. Unlike Venice though, access through the canals are restricted to the licensed tour boats only, which in turn helps in the preservation of its truly old and historic buildings.

Even the hotel that we stayed in, Hotel Ter Brughe dates back officially to 1470 with it's vaulted basement going back further to 1200's!

This vaulted basement has been converted to a spacious room and is just above the canal level so when you open the windows you have the canal just right in front of you, and sometimes swans swim by to say hello (or beg for food rather). Yep, it was our room during our stay in the city felt priviledged to have slept in a very, very old room...

As our hotel room overlooked a canal, we had visitors each morning.

In a city that is so beautiful, it's best to just let the photos speak for themselves.

Two to three days in Brugge is highly recommended, to soak in the sights, chocolate, beer, and delicious cuisine.
